Wow. How can it be Friday already? I am still recovering from my craft weekend, Joel and I are both fighting bad colds, and poor Levi has his first ear infections. We are still plugging away at our 25 day challenge. Some nights it has been with very sleepy eyes and lots of coughing that we read our advent book together, but we are trying really hard to keep our commitment. And we don’t just want to put a check in the box for the day, but really prepare our hearts for Christmas and all that it means. Doesn’t it usually happen that when you make a commitment to deepen your walk with the Lord all sorts of things start pressing for your attention? We are trying to stay focused here at the Macs. This post is a little late, but I thought you might want to see what our little guy is up to at eleven months.
Levi, how did you get to be eleven months old already?
You are doing so many things at eleven months I don’t even know where to start…
You stand on your own, but plop right back down when we try to get you to take a step. Someday soon you will get brave and start running circles around your mama.
You love to eat. You are eating mostly on your own and you will eat anything. I can hardly put food on your tray fast enough. At this rate I am going to be in trouble when you are a teenager.
You are into everything. Nothing is safe. You love opening and closing cupboards, playing in the pantry, trying to sneak into the bathroom if I forget to close the door, and you figured out how to crawl down the step into the mudroom. I know if the house is quiet that you are probably getting into something you shouldn’t be. I guess that is why the pediatrician told me to make sure the house is childproof.
You are all boy. You play with cars and tractors. When we ask you where your tractor is you crawl over to it. You love to be outside. Too bad it is winter and getting too cold to be out much. You are not afraid to get dirty and you make a lot of noise. I love that you are so different than your sister.
Pretty soon we are going to be celebrating your first birthday, you will get to turn around in your car seat, and you will take off walking. I don’t know how time is going so fast, but I am so thankful for everyday that I get to spend with you.
